The Mana Pool
Join Brian, Mike, Dirk and Chewie as they discuss all things Magic: The Gathering. Since there are plenty of tournament and strategy podcasts out there, we've decided to focus on the fun of the game in all its many forms, from Prereleases to multiplayer free-for-alls to whatever else we can come up with. Give us a listen!

 

Let us tell you a tale, a tale of a dude. That dude is Travis, and he just keeps having problems. Poor Travis. Maybe if he wasn't so awesome he wouldn't run into so much trouble. Or maybe he just really sucks.

Hey look, Brian's back! And look, we have a lot more Commander cards to talk about! Yay! And look, the Cat Dragon token is SO ADORABLE! I WANT ONE!

Please excuse Chewie's mic the first 2.5 minutes of this episode. That was weird.

These Commander 2017 cards are SO MAJESTIC! Seriously. Mike forgot how to speak. Dirk forgot how to read. Chewie almost choked to death. And they were SO MAJESTIC that Brian wasn't even here. Look at all that majesty!

But because we got so caught up in the multicolored cards (mostly the legends), we opted to leave the monocolored cards until next week so Brian can join in on the fun.

We begin with another Sam Quiz, which was a little tricksy. Then, after a brief story of personal injury and public surgery from Chewie we get right into it! We're doing a Mythic Conscription for Dissension, finishing out the original Ravnica block. This set, much like some of the other Ravnica sets, was a little hard to do. Or maybe easy. We're not sure. There's a bizarre switch with the leadership of the Azorius guild. Dirk actually leans towards a red rare enchantment as mythic. And then, at the very end, there's the big discussion about Simic Sky Swallower.
